Creative Moments challenge – Special Lady

This weeks Creative Moments has two fabulous sponsors for this month’s challenge the first one is All Dressed Up

This cute digi is called Headgehog Flower. I assembled the card using papers that came with a magazine, some scrappy ribbon and a sentiment from a set bought from a Steph Weightman set. It’s been a while since I made a layered card like this buut I think the result is perfect for a spring birthday.

Challenge Reminder – Interactive cards

I have a lovely Easter card for you today to help us to celebrate Spring and Lent. This gorgeous digi called Jo’s Daffodils is available from Sheepski’s Designs, who are kindly sponsoring this month’s challenge at Creative Moments.

I printed the image onto water colour paper and coloured using AquaMarkers. I then used a die to cut out the cross and assembled it into a shaker card using tiny shinies from my stash.

Creative Moments – DT Call

Today I’m sharing another of the Christmas cards that I made. This was a Hunkydory kit and made a delightfully pretty card. I found some gems in my stash to add some balance and finish it off. The photo doesn’t really do justice to the colours on this card.

This month at Creative Moments we are not running our usual challenge as we are looking for new members of the team . If you are reading this and have thought that joining a challenge blog might be a fun challenge, please click through to enter 2 of your blog posts which demonstrate your style.

I am sharing today a card I hade for Christmas for one of my sons. This was so simple as I had a roll of patterned ribbon, cut a length and mounted it onto a mat onto a card. I finished with a few peel-off and some letters. Although I love colouring, fussy cutting and making really decorative cards, it is important to remember that sometimes the simplest cards can be the most effective, especially when we have a lot to make at Christmas.

Creative moments challenge reminder

Happy New Year! I pray that everyone reading is blessed in this coming year with good health and freedom from financial worry.

There is still time to enter the December challenge at Creative moments. The optional theme is Christmas but we are always delighted to see your makes so share what ever is new! This month’s challenge is sponsored by Beccy’s place and you could win a voucher to spend in her store. I made these tags using Just A Note which is a free digi on the blog. I bottled pears from my garden in brandy back in September but the Beccy’s Place digi was perfect for labelling them as Christmas gifts.

Creative Moments Challenge – Christmas celebrations

Yay! It’s nearly Christmas! I have made this super cute Christmas tag using an elf digi from Beccy’s Place Store. It is really worth having a look at the digis for Christmas and beyond as they are gorgeous.

I printed the elf and couloured it using Promarkers before deciding I wanted to trim it to a tag shape and backed it with a festive mat.

Creative Moments Challenge reminder – Winter

I just love Christmas, from the music to the sparkles and the abundance of red everywhere to the religious significance.

Is it just me who thinks that this year has flown by? Christmas cards have been written ready to send, though I have to admit that I have not had the time to make them all this year. I have made a few beauties though, including this one. I used a Polkadoodles digistamp called  Frosted Fox – Octavia Frosted Winter. It was coloured using Promarkers and mounted up using Polkadoodles papers from a paper pack I bought last year. The embellishments were bits I had in my stash, in fact I think the red felt tree was a trim in a gift set I received. Got to love a bit of upcycling!

If you would like the chance to win some Polkadoodles digis, please go over to Creative Moments and enter our challenge, Polkadoodles is generously sponsoring us this month and you have until 12th December to enter.
